    Ihave serveral "pickle" recipes for various fruits and veggies on my site including o course tomatoes! Love those little buggers! Have you ever tried whole green cherry or grape tomatoes? Their good to but sometimes you bite and hey squirt out the side of your mouth.

    Looks like a violin on the left and dulcimer on the right.

    Started scum-scraping today. Its working right along! The smell has taken on the "sour" attribute instead of the straight 'sulphury" cabbage boquet, which leads me to assume all is well. [​IMG]

    What do you use to remove the scum? I just got my first batch going too.

    Thanks!

    Teaspoon. rinse after every "scrape". Err on the side of caution.

    Late arrival on this one.
    My little German descent granny used to make kraut. They lived on the "German Prairie" in SW Missouri. My brother and I spent our summers there hauling hay for a penny a bale, penny and a half put in the barn. She made it in a large crock jar with a plate on top and a washed limestone rock for a weight. Piece of flour sack over the top to keep things out. She put it under the house where it was cooler (through an opening in the foundation) to do it's thing.
    That said, try these -

    Fried Sauerkraut
    Serves 4
    8 slices bacon
    4 tablespoons diced onions
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 pound sauerkraut
    4 tablespoons sugar
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Drain sauerkraut in a colander. Fry bacon until crisp and set aside.
    Saute diced onions in bacon drippings until golden brown; then add the butter.
    Toss in the sauerkraut and the sugar and cook, stirring frequently on medium heat until it is warm all the way through.
    Salt and pepper to taste. Top with the crispy bacon pieces.
    Serve with pork chops.

    Reuben Dip
    1/2 cup sauerkraut chopped and drained
    3 ounces cream cheese, softened
    8-ounce container sour cream
    1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
    4 ounces sliced corned beef, finely diced
    3 tablespoons milk
    (Possible ABT filling????)

    Enjoy!

    One of those things. After I put the recipe there the light bulb lit (dimly).[​IMG]

    Getting in on this late, I was surprised how many pages are on a sauerkraut thread!! We love sauerkraut. Never made the stuff, but my Aunt goes out to Dutchie country around Christmas time and gets some great kraut. We don't rinse it, but for anyone faint of heart would think it wayyyy too sauer. New Years Day it's pork and sauerkraut, mashed tater and baked beans. Has to be the worst meal for a hangover, but it's like a religion that you have to eat it for good luck through the year.

    I was just perusing a cookbook on saturday and saw a recipe for a sauerkraut stuffed pork loin. I'm thinking of trying that in the smoker! You have to lay the loin open like Dutch's one recipe...then tie it back up.
